Research shows that 4 out of 10 trainees were not teaching six months after leaving university and a further 18 per cent of newly qualified teachers quit within three years.

This course will provide a toolkit of excellent ideas and advice relating to all aspects of your first few years of teaching, as well as preparing you for everything the inspectors could throw at you.

The presenter has mentored PGCE/NQT/GTPs and trained teachers, middle and senior leaders for more than 15 years and is regularly rated by delegates as “outstanding”. The course is designed to consolidate and build on the skills you have learnt in your first year of teaching taking them to a higher level rather than repeating what you already know.
